The sporty Mazda CX-30 is the entry-level crossover SUV in the 2024 lineup. This subcompact crossover sits below the compact Mazda CX-5 crossover. While both models have two-row cabins and share some traits, they stand out with exciting individuality in essential ways. Our Classic Mazda reps can help you compare these popular models thoroughly.


There are eight trim options for the 2024 Mazda CX-30. The base-level engine loaded into over half of these trims is a 191-horsepower, four-cylinder, 2.5-liter gas engine. It has all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission. The remaining trim levels have a turbocharged version of this four-cylinder engine. It produces 227 horsepower and comes with the same transmission and drivetrain. The 2024 Mazda CX-5 is also available with two powertrains across eight trim levels. These powertrains are a 187-horsepower, four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine and a 227-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Both are equipped with all-wheel drive and a six-speed auto transmission.


The Mazda CX-30 and Mazda CX-5 share many design traits, but the Mazda CX-30 is noticeably smaller. Its look is established by a gracefully descending hood and a raked rear. The sides are mostly smooth except for a stunning accent that descends toward the rear haunches. Thick molding runs along the sides and bumpers. The wide grille curves fluidly into the slender headlights. The Mazda CX-5 is defined by a dramatically angled hood and bold, sculpted sides. A thin band of dark molding runs across the bumper and carries around the entire perimeter. The Mazda CX-5’s grille and headlights are closely styled after the Mazda CX-5’s grille and headlights.


The features available in the Mazda CX-5 and the Mazda CX-30 vary considerably across their long trim lineups, and they share many features.
